According to “Master’s Degrees and Teacher Effectiveness: New Evidence From State Assessments,” by Arroyo Research Services, teachers who earn master’s degrees demonstrate greater teaching effectiveness than those who don’t.

The study found that students whose teachers held a master’s degree performed better in reading and writing tests. Researchers examined over 4,000 teachers and 205,000 students, discovering that knowledge gained in a master’s program does lead to improved student outcomes.

Students seeking the M.S. Ed. will complete the Department of Language, Literature, and Writing portfolio and oral defense as well as the required final assessment for the Department of Language, Literature, and Writing. These will be evaluated separately.
